Secrets to Strengthening Attitude
And Confidence in Challenging Moments
New Business Campaign is always challenging, but it's particularly challenging when one is in a very competitive marketplace. At times, life can seem like a roller coaster ride. Some days you will feel better than others. Some days will be more productive than others. But as Scarlett O'Hara said in Gone with the Wind, "Tomorrow is another day." Start each day with fresh confidence and strength of heart.
The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can,
I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate
their waking thoughts on what they should have or
would have done, or what they can't do.
—Dr. Dennis Waitley, The Psychology of Winning
I want to share with you some other ideas you can use to help keep a positive mindset in the midst of your Corporate Business ups and downs.
The first is to embrace the six confidence-building strategies suggested by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt in The Power of Focus:
1. Every day, remind yourself that you did something well.
2. Read inspiring biographies and autobiographies.
3. Be thankful.
4. Build excellent support around you.
5. Push yourself to accomplish short-term goals.
6. Do something for yourself every week.
The road to confidence is paved with weekly victories. Learn to applaud them.
Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt have graciously allowed me to share this with you. You will find the subject more in depth in their book.
The key to maintaining a positive mindset during your New Business Campaign is being prepared to keep getting back on your horse. Sit straight in your saddle with confidence.
Acknowledge your stress.
Acknowledge your different emotions at different times.
Define your fears.
Define what you are grateful for.
Admit when you are overwhelmed and address the situation.
Maintain your confidence, happiness, and strength of heart at all possible times.
Rely on your loved ones and your support system of friends.
Rely on a higher authority to help you through the rough spots.
Never give up on the belief in yourself and that you will succeed in landing that next great corporate business account.
1. Put things in perspective. Look beyond the present.
2. Make sure you are reaching out for support.
3. Remind yourself that this is only a small portion of your life's big picture.
4. Continue to look for a job. Set goals and keep working at it.
I believe in you. I know you will find your next BIG piece of corporate business. Stay in the game. You will need determination, patience, and a committed drive to keep pressing forward toward your goal.
The mind can convince a competent person that
he is incompetent or an adequate person that he is highly
talented. Unfortunately, self-doubt and negative attitudes
seem to have a more powerful inﬂuence on the mind than
positive attitudes. Usually a person is not aware that he
is setting himself up or limiting his capabilities.
It is up to you to decide how you want to live each day. What are you going to do with each day of our life?
You are in the driver's seat of your life and can point
your life down any road you want to travel. You can
go as fast or as slow as you want to go . . . and you
can change the road you're on at any time.
